Blue Fern Studios: Making Chipboard the Project Focus~!

Hello everyone! This is a prescheduled post and if all is well, we are currently moving into our new house and I won't be online much- or at all- these next few days. Such an exciting time and I'm SO happy we've finally reached this point. I cannot wait to be settled in and for life to slow down (and stress down) just a bit.

I'm here with you today to show you how to take your favorite Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces and make them the shining star on your projects. I've got three different examples for you, featuring three different types of projects- all of varying sizes- so you can see how easily you can incorporate our amazing products into whatever you love doing best!

"The Wait is Long"
First up we have an 8"x10" canvas. My inspiration for this piece was the Grand Balloon. And paired with this sweet photo of my son as he patiently awaited a deer to his "stand", I found my match! It was perfect for putting together this whimsical scene and truly does take center stage on my canvas.

For the stars, I used the centers of the Ornate Medallions.

Blue Fern Studios Products Used:

Grand Balloon 075100

Vintage Locks 074783

Ornate Medallions (centers) 074462

"Pixie Tag"
 Next we have a smaller piece, a tag. And taking center stage we have one of the Regal Ornaments and Vintage Keys, inked and layered to create a wonderful centerpiece for this feminine project.

I just love the dimension! And so simple to create coordinating pieces with a coverage of chalk inks.

Vintage Keys 075032

"Forever" Card
Finally, I have a "dressed up" card for you! I knew that the Charlotte's Dress Set would be perfect for a wedding card, though I hadn't exactly intended for it to be a Bohemian-style wedding- but that is just the way it goes sometimes, isn't it? :)

I used plenty of fabric, trims, wire, pearls, liquid pearls, and microbeads to bring this dress to life. What would you do with yours??

Thank-you for the visit today! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
